Co-operative Education

Students applying to the University directly from high school will be considered for admission to Co-op. Normally, a minimum average of 80% is required for consideration, but exact cut-offs are determined by the quantity and quality of the applicant pool as well as space available in each program. All students, including International applicants, are encouraged to explore Co-operative Education as an option,

Students who apply directly to a Co-op program and who are not admitted will automatically be considered for admission to the regular degree program. Please refer to Co-operative Education Programs in Chapter X for further information.
